Tonight’s mystery artist says that after he left the band he had become well known for he inherited his music from his time with the band and that he performs those songs he wrote still today with his new band.

These remarks come on the eve of the Anniversary of the Van Halen album 5150 coming from none other than Sammy Hagar referring to that time in their history as the Van Hagar years.  In the video below Sammy tells how when he is out with his new band Circle they rock out on many of the songs from that record’s play list. In Sammy’s words:

It’s really good stuff and somebody’s got to play it…I’m happy to.

March 24th '5150' will turn 33 years old.

And from that album here is tonight's featured song.

Here is the interview with Sammy.
